Kamea Hadar's 'Face Value' at Cukui Gallery

Erotica // Thursday, August 15, 2013
'Face Value' at Cukui gallery will feature new canvas works by Kamea Hadar and explores the human form and its relation to themes of sex, culture, and the human condition. The contrast of highly finished detail and rough paint strokes makes for an interesting balance of seemingly static imagery and the dynamic nature of an artist’s hand. This not only moves the viewers’ eyes around the pieces but pushes and pulls perspectives in and out. The use of negative space also adds to the dancing of perspective as well as allowing the audience to input pieces of their own interpretation. The show opens August 16th from 7-10pm.   

Hammer Projects: Maya Hayuk

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.

Paintings by Travis Collinson

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 09, 2013
San Francisco-based artist Travis Collinson's process involves taking elements of photographs and sketches and reinterpreting them at a larger scale in his paintings. Influenced by classical painting and minimal abstraction, Collinson work plays with perspective and distortion in an effective and interesting way.

Buddy Nestor's 'Spiritual X-Ray' Portraits

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 07, 2013
Buddy Nestor's abstract portraits of female artists are his attempt to capture the true nature of humanity. The physical and psychological images he paints are what he calls "spiritual X-Rays." He says, "The models that I use in my work are all beautiful women. However, there is nothing beautiful about the portraits I create."

Gina Ruggeri's Spatial Illusions

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 06, 2013
Trompe l'oeil, is an art technique that creates the optical illusion that depicted objects exist in three dimensions. A comparable illusion would be 'forced perspective', a technique used in architecture. Artist Gina Ruggery has employed the technique in her paintings on gallery walls, creating eye-catching images of logs, stones and smokes that seem to both disappear and emerge from the walls.
